The Palin-Couric Interviews

Sarah Palin deserves a top 10 election video list of her own: the "pitbull with lipstick" convention speech, the Matt Damon rant, the Tina Fey impressions, the numerous YouTube impersonations, her 1984 Miss Alaska pageant footage, and, of course, The Wink. But at the center of all these disparate impressions of the Governor of Alaska was this mini-series of interviews that played like Nixon-Frost, the Sitcom. After largely avoiding the media, Palin established the much-criticized Couric as the one mainstream journalist with any claim on affecting this election and gave Fey weeks of material.
